Harold S. and Harriet B. Brady Scholarship
Some say our lives are best judged by the friends we make, and Harold S. Brady is a good example of this. Thanks to the generosity of his friends and associates, who created the Harold S. and Harriet B. Brady Scholarship Fund in memory ofHarold, the Bradys’ legacy offriendship and loyalty to the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine continues.
A native of Rock Island, Illinois, Harold received a B.S. degree from the UI in 1934. After attending the Carver College of Medicine, he entered business and was a highly successful investment broker and president of Harold S. Brady Company in Chicago. Harold had a long and distinguished association with the University of Iowa and with the medical profession. He died in 1976. However, this scholarship ensures that the Carver College of Medicine, which Harold fondly recalled from his student days, will continue nurturing students.
Established through the University of Iowa Foundation, the Harold S. and Harriet B. Brady Scholarship Fundis awarded every other year to a first-year medical student on the basis of promise of professional achievement. The scholarship is awarded from the income from a permanently endowed fund established through contributions from members of the Brady family, friends, and business associates. The fund provides tuition, laboratory fees, books, and equipment for the recipient. Harold’s wife, Harriet, tookan active interest in the scholarship and its recipients. Harriet passed away in 2003 but provided additional funding for the Brady Scholarship through a generous estate gift.
Since its creation in 1977, the Harold S. and Harriet B. Brady Scholarship Fundhas helped promising medical students fulfill their dreams. Derek Dubay, a 1999 graduate of the CarverCollege of Medicine and recipient of the Brady Scholarship, said, “Mr. Brady was a very interesting and accomplished individual. His family and friends established thismemorial fund to honor him. This kind of private support really connects students to the people who support them and the college.”
Without doubt, Harold’s friends and family,as well as his beloved wife, have provided a wonderful and lasting tribute.
Congratulations on receiving the Harold S. and Harriet B. Brady Scholarship
